The Northshore 46 has long proved its worth as a well found, fast and safe offshore cruising yacht. Australian designed and built, this 1985 launched NS46 has cruised the world and is the first of the model to have circumnavigated the globe. Equipped to the hilt with everything you could want for such a voyage, she circled the globe for 9 years and visited dozens of countries. Since her return home, she has been fully re rigged and had a new engine installed so she is absolutely ready to sail away. Northshore 46s are highly regarded for their sea kindly motion and comfort at sea.
Her comfortable and spacious teak trimmed interior can sleep up to 8 and features enormous storage capacity. She has a well equipped galley, an excellent chart table and nav area and a roomy saloon that can seat 8 around the central table on leather upholstered settees. The good sized bathroom has a marine toilet, wash basin and hot & cold shower with plenty of storage space. Television and quality stereo provide for great entertainment or you can just lounge on the full length cockpit cushions and read a good book in the shade.
She has been set up for short-handed sailing with the easily managed cutter rig and quality deck equipment. She has a great turn of speed and her shoal draft with dagger board keel configuration opens up access to so many more waterways than any deep keel boat can visit. Her comprehensive inventory includes Furler, Electric halyard winch, Autopilot, Radar, AIS, GPS with chart plotter, Watermaker, 2 Fridges and a Freezer, Hot water, Dinghy with outboard, Solar charging, Electric anchor windlass with Sarca anchor, Heart power management system, Full covers against wind, waves, rain and sun, a vast array of engine, mechanical, electrical and sailing equipment spares and so much more. Importantly, she has a fully documented record of upgrades and maintenance along with highly detailed ongoing maintenance instructions.
This ocean going yacht is extraordinarily well equipped with multiple backup options ensuring ongoing reliability for power, navigation and sailing systems, essential for safe blue water cruising. Much work went into preparing this yacht for long distance reliability and self-sufficiency. An Australian Registered Ship, she is ready and waiting to set sail again on new adventures. If you are serious about comfortable blue water or coastal cruising in an easily handled yacht then you really must inspect this one!
